2022—The Sydney Opera House

In 1973, Queen Elizabeth II officially opened what was to become Sydney’s iconic Opera House in Australia. It was fitting, then, that she was honored with her likeness projected onto the largest sail of the Opera House after her death on September 8. We were told that it would only be up for only a couple of days but when we arrived in Sydney on September 13 and walked by the Opera House after sunset, the tribute remained and we saw it every evening we were there. Before we went to dinner late one afternoon, we photographed the Opera House from across the channel where the ferries come and go. It was quite the challenge to photograph the iconic site without a ferry cruising by at that time of day, probably rush hour for the ferries. The mellow sun and clouds announcing a pending storm made the Opera House glow.
